Belle Époque, Platinum, Ruby and Diamond Bombé Ring

SKU: ARB-499


Ruby and diamond ring, early 20th century. This fantastic three-stone ruby and diamond ring is a tour-de-force of Belle Epoque jewellery design. Around 1900, the world of jewellery was transformed by the introduction of platinum, which allowed jewellers to create designs of previously unparalleled grace and subtlety. Gone were heavy settings in silver and gold - platinum was stronger and lighter, and could keep its shape even when pulled into fine wire. This curved bombé ring shows how beautifully it could be worked - it is constructed out of stylised ivy leaves, the open work construction and millegrain borders give the design a lightness that doesn't overshadow the beauty of its stones unheated vivid red ruby at its centre, two well-matched antique Old European cut diamonds at each side, and scattering of smaller diamonds across the ivy leaf motifs. A beautiful and rare design indeed.

Why I love it...

“A work of art. The detail attention to detail is exquisite, this ring is an example of incredibly fine craftsmanship. The platinum has been painstakingly engraved around the setting all the way down to the bottom of the shank, truly amazing. The way the platinum has been pierced to create an almost Egyptian-like motif is just mesmerising. The ruby is a stunning colour, a bright red ruby from the old mines of Thailand, you just can't beat this colour! ”
